10:07 am
including your 15 percent reserve we've made progress in meeting our capital backlog and respects investment you'll see the strength of the economy and how it helps the position of our assets from the then to our revenue it's a picture of growth and diversity. and we as the commissioner adams just commented on the diversity of our portfolio and it enhances our water service our water dependence the ballpark and explore tomorrow we can't imagine. being anywhere but on our port. this is a strength that highlighted in the preliminary
10:08 am
official statement we're looking at 6.74 times in 2014 and in 2015 to 7.5 times coverage this is internal goal is never to fall below two times coverage this is on the revenue bonds the probation officers looked at this and the low is 2.77 times all of this to say we're not over leveraged nor do we plan to be over leveraged. to our revenues i'm sure you're aware of in 2013 our operating revenue was 20 pillow plus and the chart on the right is the growth for the past 18 years the port revenues have increased due
10:09 am
to management intrefrj and the inclusion of our assets and the green is other sources but it's remained relatively constant that's to say we're doing a job in remaining a share of both types of revenue. also throw in the preliminary official statement you'll see reflected our initiate that's can enhanced our credit from the capital plan approval do again, the capital policy the close attention to selecting revenue generating projects in our bond program to securing external
10:10 am
sources from the city ace the parks program and grants other appropriations and many not able projects. we have 19 risk factors that eave disclosed on page 17 to we took a great deal of time to make sure we're disclosing any risks we can think of our executive director had every member in the senior staff review the risks to document every possible risks i'm going to highlight 3 they're the ones i think about. so one is the condition of the ports facilities that that is one you're very, very aware of
10:11 am
your assets are over one hundred and a 50 yields we'll have high seismic risks it means we need to also be focused on repair of those facilities and we've lost revenue from our history it's a serious risk to the port we i may lose revenue producing risks. other restraints on revenues this is really leading the potential investor to understand we may not also have the ability to raise the revenues it's out of our control it's the regulatory framework we operate under sunshine which sometimes restricts our ability to do that. while we're still subject to all the economic and competitive factors that other commercial
10:12 am
and real estate businesses operate under they're not under the regulatory environment and we are and, of course, wealthier we obviously have two actively faults and we've experienced significant earthquakes. and in april of 2008 a working group produced a report and the probability of a earthquake is how attests probably we'll have an earthquake in the next few years. as for next steps we'll be meeting with the regulatory agency to go over the rating a credit presentation and the allocations will be providing a rating for this bond issuance. we will be going to the board of supervisors for approval and the
10:13 am
board of supervisors will also need to approve the plaintiff o f and the prices we'll show those and have a negotiated sale and they'll report back to the commission. i'm here to answer any questions you have >> so moved. >> is there a second. >> second. >> public comment? seeing none. commissioners. do you want to >> no, i'm okay with it she's dot the i's and cross the t's it looks good to me. >> commissioner brandon. >> you did a good job with your presentation and the staff report was thorough i think i understand everything i noticed one that added to the financial

committee >> thank you. commissioner adams >> clearly due diligence has been done i want to say i'm hoping we can get some federal funds you've duplicate a great job but clearly we need federal funds out of the harbor funds or something like that. so thank you >> i'm sorry i just wanted it add i want to commend you on the great diversity of the team. it's a great team >> and i also want to thank you and all your team for the incredible work the members of the public can't see the
10:16 am
unbelievable pile of information. so i had one question it's not directly related per say but we're certainly not over legend or leveraged with the - in the fire chief how are we positions there the future bonds? >> in terms of bonding capacity our remaining bonding capacity after this issuance is $40 million maybe a little bit higher but we're careful about new revenue bond because it will compete with our capital budget we find is project that will generate revenue to pay us back
10:17 am
so what have capacity you know with the budget does that make sense. >> yes. >> well, thank you. can i have a motion all in favor, say i. opposed? so the two items carry. resolution number 14 dash 18 carries. item 12 a request the approval with the california terminals incorporated the developing vessel for pier 96 for a one year term with the options and one extension for the revenue for $233,000 >> peter daily maritime director since 1998 we've been
10:18 am
under character with the vessels through the maritime. you'll recognize them in you go to the at&t park and those are the two ships we're top of today. mar add maintains a fleeft of vessels that are for the need of the military for emergency equipment around the world. this national defense reserve fleet their ships are births around the world and they keep the ships in a readiness position with a 96 hour evacuation. the terminals is part of the
10:19 am
largest contractor for the shipped and dating back to 1998 the california has had a relationship with this company. we currently have 3 ships under contract at pier 50 and 96 that agreement with the federal government exteriors this are. having the ships in san francisco is important for a number of reason a their ships and kind of cool looking and b they're a major tenant of our public utilities commission and they're about $175 million a year and those ships require ongoing ship maintenance and i see the gentleman in the back. which generates jobs and then as
10:20 am
important mary ships have the capacity to support of the efforts in the anticipation of a national disaster. those ships having them on the waterfront if there's a energy they can provide water and power and tear housing and the mayor was using those ships in the new orleans after katrina. and in new york after sandy the ships were vital in recovery and it was after the earthquake in the 80s a few years back. mary add puts the contracts out to bid and they put the 3 ships out forbid and the 3 ships the two at pier 50 the kate hudson and the third is the chesapeake
10:21 am
at the pier 96 the coast would i do slittion and had power costs that are higher but unfortunately, we can't over better costs. it was a more competitive isolation and under the lease we're responsible for the capital from the wire to the electrical to the sewer and dredging. at the end we worked there the california terminals we worked that reduced the revenues, however, in subsequent years it will provide more revenues.
10:22 am
the port based on the approval here today and the contract going going forward the terms of the agreement are in the staff report it's one it's 10 one year periods that's reluctant yearly. i'm here and the contractor is here for questions you may have >> so moved. >> any public comment? seeing none. commissioners >> yeah. i have to speak to this i'm supportive of this. this is something that's good for us and also the maritime administration this is one of the duties i know chip and i'll be there next week in his office i'm supportive this is something we should support and it's good
10:23 am
to have him in our backyard it's producing revenue so i ask the commissioners to support this >> thank you peter. why does the rent decrease in the first year >> we calculated a rent package that is is for year one and two and begged them to take the 5 year term the rates will go up in the subsequent years we were faced with a 40 periods of time differential compared to the ports in the northwest that are connoting we wanted to make sure we didn't lose the ships and knew we were going to be undercut up north.
10:24 am
>> thank you. >> thank you. >> i had one question in terms of the the ability to either move any of those ships to a different location or can you talk about that. >> essentially the contractors were responsible for the dlenl and n this has happened in the past we've had the shipped and a no idea need to move them we will need to supply the contractor and merry add with a birth at the different location as long as we need to have the home for the 10 year period. >> thank you. i think we're lucky it to have those ships based here and hopefully not have to use them
10:25 am
>> commissioners? all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed seeing none, it carries. the pilot transportation improvement projects identified as part of the waterfront assessment for the san francisco aid. >> good afternoon commissioner president katz and members of the commission. i'm detaining just here to introduce you to this briefing from the san francisco municipal assessment. last year there was a introductory briefing of a comprehensive assessment led by sfmta with the whole city family involved in doing intrarthd transportation planning between
10:26 am
handling all the existing uses and the projected growth and using that to incorporate into perspire tiger's and identifying strategic transportation improvements for the waterfront area. so i really want to give credit to peter and albert who's led on the overall waterfront transportation area. today aaron miller will be talking about that as it gives me revises to pilot transportation prongs mta will be carrying out in the south beach area. it grows from a number of transportation solutions strategies that have been identified and we wanted to test them. so she is focusing on one important element of that
10:27 am
testing program. there's another transportation poise of the testing program that aaron will speak to that's been conducted by the transportation authority as well. thanks very much if you have any questions here aaron miller is. >> good afternoon, commissioners. commissioner president katz i'm aaron miller i'm the transportation project person. i'm here as diane said with my colleague porter albert and diane and all the colleagues from the port i see here today. as diane mentioned i'll to start with the brief overview and reminder if you're not familiar
10:28 am
with the planning efforts they've been underway for a year now it gives us context to those precise projects i'm going to be talking about. the planning area is extending along the bay area waterfront of the city from fort mason to exempting point in the planning analysis we're take into account all of the development that has been anticipated through 20040 and in addition to that, the development i'm sure our familiar with are underway and those weren't initially anticipated in a lot of the planning and transportation planning so we're taking a step back. we see this as an opportunity to increase take a strategic planning development that will
10:29 am
result in identification and elevation and prioritization to support the future of the transportation. i'm going to go over 4 steps of phase one of the waterfront. phase one began in late 2012. and we initiated the process by reviewing a multitude of policies. with that, we were able to focus on goals that remain relevant to transportation and able to honor the rich heritage of our city without starting over again. we've host and participated in a large number of stakeholder meets to best understand transportation concerned and challenges from the experimental
10:30 am
prospective from folks on the ground. we began to look at the pipeline if you're familiar with that in the city they look at the 20040 of what they're anticipating in terms of housing and rods and jobs so we created a transportation pipeline to go next to that. we wanted to ask are the transportation projects we know are com in time for the demonstrate we anticipate that's an important question and it's been largely effective in helping us to develop the strategies. the strategies with the goals identified the stakeholders input and the understanding of what those future gaps exist we developed this long i think we have about one hundred and
